    What are your character predictions for "An Inspector Calls" and "Of Mice and Men"?

    For "An Inspector Calls", I think the character is going to be Arthur Birling.
    For "Of Mice and Men", I think the character is going to be either George or Lennie.

    Fingers crossed for George and Lennie and the theme of friendship - I think I would personally hug every person related to the exam board if that happened!

    My teacher has predicted that Carlson will be this year's character though because he's never come up and this is the last year for these style questions; at least if he did the only section you can really comment on is the killing of Candy's dog. :/

    Carlson isn't really like part of the characters section, so it wouldn't come up, neither would the boss would come up

    I think friendship (hasn't come up since like 2012) or maybe work?

    Ok, I have not really started my revision and i have not read the book once cover to cover. I think slim could come up. Can anyone give me any good points on George and Lennie. Also Curley is definitely not coming up because it was last year's and they never repeat. Last time slim came up was 2013.

    It could be the theme of Loneliness, I think that would be great to come up! I also agree, that Arthur Birling may come up too!

    I don't think Arthur Birling will
    come up on his own because that would be way too obvious. I think they will either ask us about the inspector, Eva, male characters or who is most responsible for Eva's death.
